It’s cold out there!

It was a brisk -12F (-24C) this morning when the deer visited the backyard.

Although the sun came out later, it didn’t do much for the air temperature. The deer chased each other around, but spent most of their time nibbling on the stems of buckthorn (good riddance!). So far, the winter cold doesn’t seem to have dampened their spirits any.

    • Average December temperature in the Twin Cities was 14 F (-10 C), not even close to the coldest December on record. But some Minnesota cities are having record cold weather now (lower than -30F!). January forecast doesn’t look any warmer — a trip to the tropics is looking good right about now.
